Kids under 17 will receive free admission during “Winter Break” at the Penn Museum, December 27-30, from 10:00 am-4:00 pm.

Back by popular demand and extended to four full days, Winter Break offers indoor museum adventures for families looking to enhance their holiday experiences with history and vibrant cultures from around the world.

Along with the self-guided Amazing Artifacts tour featuring QR codes to help guests “dig deeper” into each object, young artists can create paper mosaics at a free “Creation Station” in the Museum’s Asia Galleries all day.

Each day at 11:00 am, kids can learn about the principals of Kwanzaa through inspirational stories with Paul D. Best, “Our Sun Paul,” from Keepers of the Culture, Inc., Philadelphia’s Afrocentric storytelling group.

At 1:00 pm, guests can join the “Daily Dig,” a 15-minute “deep dive” into one artifact on display—what it is, how it was used, and what it can tell today’s researchers about the people who lived in that region during that time.

With galleries dedicated to life in Ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece, Mexico and Central America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Native American Voices, the Penn Museum showcases 10,000 years of human history.

All Winter Break activities are included with general admission. Tickets are now available online.
